Automated opt-in by form submission - how to deal with complexity of implicit opt-in

Currently working on the below:
We have a webinar setup. If a person fills in the form, I'd like them to receive an automated communication.
However, now that I've set up the "don't email folks without opt-in" functionality, this isn't working as expected (at least if they haven't checked the box).
Would it be possible to achieve this without using the legitimate interest option. I'd actually like to have the form submission act as an implicit opt-in to emails about that piece of content (which is okay, according to our legal) but also offer people the option to subscribe to our newsletter.
I'd say this would be achievable if we were allowed to use the subscription field more freely in forms (and put it as a hidden field, automatically checked, for a specific form) - but that's not an option either.
Current solution stated below:
In this case - if they don't check the first box, they won't receive any communication, which is poor user experience.
Also don't want to assume my audience's time to read these types of boxes, feels like fighting human nature & good user experience.
Any ideas as to how I can solve would be much appreciated.
